The Magic of Mozart

The Magic of Mozart

Sat, 18 May 2019 19:30

The Magic of Mozart - choral music by candlelight

Saturday 18 May 2019 at 7:30pm

St Mary's Church, Godmanchester

The Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Choir and Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of chorus master Lee Dunleavy, perform a programme entitled The Magic of Mozart.

Solemn Vespers

Coronation Mass

Exsultate, Jubilate

Ave verum corpus

The major works in the concert are Mozart's Solemn Vespers, with its famous final chorus "Laudate Dominum", and his grand Coronation Mass, whose first recorded performance was at the Coronation of Francis II as Holy Roman Emperor. His virtuoso motet for solo soprano "Exsultate, Jubilate", and the ever-popular "Ave verum Corpus" complete the programme ... that is, aside from a rarity! "Beata es, Virgo Maria" is a short motet in four movements for chorus, soloists and orchestra, by Leopold Mozart, Father of Wolfgang.

Huntingdon-born mezzo soprano Natalie Davies is again one of the soloists, along with Jessica Smith, soprano, Robert Tilson, tenor, and Alistair Donaghue, baritone.

The warm acoustics and candlelit atmosphere of St Mary's Church in Godmanchester provide a perfect backdrop for this concert.

Tickets available online from the website www.huntsphil.org.uk [no additional fee] £12/14 adults, £6/7 students and on the door from 7.00pm

St Mary the Virgin Church, Godmanchester, PE29 2AW
